Look what I'm Flipping Over!
I got my Flip For Decorating book in the mail today. This was my giveaway from Jamilyn and it really is fantastic! If you have a chance, go check it out!
The Genius behind this book is Elizabeth Mayhew. One of the things I love about this book is if you flip through the pages with your thumb you will see a room from beginning to end. Do you remember making those books as a kid with say, a kid on a bike and if you flip through it really fast you see him riding and them falling off. I think most of us thought that was the funniest thing, am I right? Well this is kind of like that but with furniture and no one is falling down, unless you draw a woman falling off the couch because she has had one too many cocktails! Oops, there I go again, digressing or maybe wishing, but that would be pretty funny!
In this book you will learn how to pick key pieces of furniture and how to place them in your room. She then will give you a lessen on picking the right accessories for that room. If you need help learning how to pick the right paint colors, you'll find that in there. And if you thought that was it, she will even teach you how to choose the right window treatment for your windows, and how to scale down on collections. Wow, every time I turn a page I am even more impressed with what I find.
Here are a few pictures of a living room starting from the furniture placement! Now if you excuse me, I need to pour me a Margarita and get flipping! After all, it is Cinco De Mayo!
